1/4 tsp. salt

Recipe Directions for citrus shortcake

  2. ? In a large bowl, combine the flour, sugar, orange zest, baking powder, baking soda, and salt and stir well.

  3. ? Use a pastry blender to cut in the vegan margarine until the mixture has a coarse, crumby texture.

  4. ? In a small bowl, combine the remaining ingredients and stir. Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients and mix well.

  5. ? Transfer the dough to a lightly floured work surface and use your hands to pat the dough until it is about 3/4 inch thick.

  6. ? Dip a 3-inch cookie cutter of any shape into a little flour, cut 12 sections out of the dough (re-dipping the cutter into the flour as needed), and transfer them to the prepared cookie sheet.

  7. ? Bake them at 400ºF for 10 minutes, then reduce the heat to 350ºF and bake for an additional 5 minutes or until they are light brown on the bottom.

  8. ? Allow them to cool slightly before serving.
